Cardinals Broadcaster Honored at Former High School
The former Cardinals third baseman was a three-sport star in the mid-1950s at Christian Brothers College High School as well as Missouri prep player of the year in football and basketball. His father, three sons and three grandsons are also CBC graduates.
The private school is raising money toward a new Mike Shannon Stadium at Cadet Park.
The 74-year-old announcer recently had heart surgery and limited his broadcast duties to Cardinals home games during the National League Championship Series.
